bryant park 9/11/2011. an interactive project by sheryl oring
a friend, john, was a member of a typing pool present in bryant park to hear and record opinions and observations of the public on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attack. many people participated and seemed to find it satisfying and therapeutic. emotion was shown. those who stopped to talk included a half naked woman in a bow tie and painted on mustache, and actress mary steenburgen. also, more than a few who had lost people in the twin towers. my own observation was not very eloquent (though heartfelt!) nor, as one can see, was the typist very highly skilled(!) -(just teasing, typist)- but that's all part of the art, i was told. i thought it was great!
